Postpartum Freezer Cooking Plan + Free Printable!

So in case you missed the announcement, baby #2 is on his way to the Wadsworth home! He'll be here at the end of May, and we couldn't be less prepared this time around. I'm knocking on the door of my third trimester, and we still have no crib assembled, no clothes hung, and no diapers bought. So I'm hoping this post will give me the inspiration I need to get organized the way I was before Judah arrived.

I'm a classic type-A personality, so when all these people told me that it wasn't possible to prepare myself for Judah, I called foul. The only thing I couldn't fully prepare for, it turns out, was sleep deprivation. And when you're sleep deprived, it takes all your other planning and throws it out the window. So I planned even more by making frozen meals ahead of time. It turned out to be a good decision, since Tim swears his love language is food. I tell him that's not an option in the book. Doesn't seem to matter.

Starting in the beginning of my third trimester, I doubled most of these recipes I'm about to list. I froze and labeled the second half to enjoy later after Judah came. Seriously, it was one of the the best decisions I made pre-baby. I don't love relying on others to provide me or my family with meals, so knowing I had an arsenal of meals tucked away was life-saving {by the way, if you are planning on taking a meal to a new mom, make sure and follow these tips}.

Let's get started! Remember, many of these recipes have "accessories" {think tortillas, sandwich rolls, etc.}, some that can be frozen, and some that can't, so just make sure you have those stockpiled away.
